Comal County Senior Citizen's Foundation (CCSCF) is embarking on a building renovation project. Our goal is to restore our 45-year-old building. The CCSCF proposes renovations to the existing Senior Center, interior and exterior, which will result in an all-inclusive innovative facility with up to date technology, efficient use of space, and programs that are designed to serve all seniors 50 years and over, veterans, and disabled adults from Comal County and surrounding areas. With the population growth of Comal County (named second fastest growing county in the Nation for 2017 by U.S. Census Bureau), CCSCF plans to be proactive with the expansion of all of our programs, which include Meals on Wheels to home bound individuals in 4 counties, Congregate Meals in 3 counties, Exercise and Fitness Programs designed for seniors 50 and over, Education Programs with topics of interest to aging adults, and daily Socialization activities. We hope to expand our programs to accommodate the growing number of retirees in our areas of service.
Seniors want to live with mobility and independence. Aging in place is of primary concern for aging adults. The right pieces of medical equipment make living safely at home a reality. Oftentimes, the wheelchair, bathroom assistance items, hospital bed or other assistive technology devices are too expensive, not covered by insurance, or are delayed in reaching the senior in need. Project MEND's Medical Equipment Reuse Program provides these critical items at little to no cost. Your support makes it possible for Seniors to continue to live as independently as possible for as long as possible.
The GIVE65 Incentive Fund allows Home Instead Senior Care Foundation to provide matching grants and financial prize rewards to nonprofit organizations participating on the GIVE65 site. Your donation to the GIVE65 Incentive Fund in honor of the Foundation's 15-year anniversary will inspire greater charitable giving in support of seniors most in need of our help. Our GIVE65 partnering nonprofit organizations are providing much needed support through meaningful programs, such as transportation, meals and nutrition, low-income housing, Alzheimer's and dementia care, hospice and charitable care and so much more. Your donation is an investment that creates hope for seniors!
A study by the Foundation Center reports just two percent of funding from the nation's largest grant makers is specifically focused on seniors - even though the senior population will double in just 15 years. Furthermore, the U.S. census bureau reports that one in seven seniors is living in poverty based on the supplemental poverty measure. As 10,000 people are turning age 65 every day in the U.S., there is a tremendous need to increase the capacity of nonprofit programs and services that create hope for seniors.
In 2016, Home Instead Senior Care Foundation established GIVE65 to inspire greater charitable giving in support of nonprofit organizations that serve the low-income, vulnerable senior audience. Home Instead Senior Care Foundation is proud to present GIVE65 in collaboration with generous sponsors sharing our mission to help seniors in need.
